Not making considerable upgrades to the cornerback position

The decision to release Darious Williams would've looked much better if the Jaguars had made upgrades to their cornerback room. In their defense, there weren't many appealing options in free agency but trading for L'Jarius Sneed wouldn't have been cost prohibitive.

Also, the Jaguars had a chance to take any of the top cornerback prospects in the draft. However, they chose to address other needs and waited until Round 3 to select Jarrian Jones. The silver lining is that they've added depth at the position. Just recently, they signed Tre Flowers, who played for Ryan Nielsen last year.

Moreover, sophomore Christian Braswell could make a leap in Year 2, so the Jaguars may want to wait to see what they have in their younger players before they make any further additions.

It's possible that Braswell or Jones could contribute in 2024 but if neither step up, Jacksonville may want to give the New Orleans Saints a call about Marshon Lattimore.

The Jaguars should've moved on from Cam Robinson (they still can)

Left tackle Cam Robinson has been a mainstay of the offensive line for years, so it wasn't particularly shocking to see the front office give him a three-year deal worth $54 million in 2022. What was surprising is that the Jags had a chance to move on from him and free up $17 million in space but opted not to.

Perhaps the Jaguars have been looking for a trade partner but haven't gotten an offer they liked. But even if they don't get the kind of compensation they want, the savings are too good to pass up. That extra cap space could definitely come in handy when it's time to sign Trevor Lawrence to an extension.

Leaving aside the cap relief, the Jaguars have a pair of capable replacements in Walker Little and Anton Harrison. The former has fared well when he's stepped in for Robinson and the latter played left tackle in college. Furthermore, trading Robinson wouldn't leave the team devoid of depth because they drafted Javon Foster.

Simply put, the benefits of parting ways with Robinson outweigh the drawbacks. Working in the Jaguars' favor is that they have enough time before the start of the regular season to make it happen.
